The soul of Sparkling Pointe was born more than twenty years ago, when Tom and Cynthia Rosicki first met at a debutante ball at the Waldorf Astoria. Weeks later, with a bottle of Champagne they toasted their first date. Cruising the Chesapeake Bay on their honeymoon, still only months later, they stocked their boat with many vintages and types of Champagne and Sparkling Wines. And through the years, they became lovers of the romance and magic of Champagne.

As residents and lovers of Long Island’s North Fork, Tom and Cynthia witnessed the birth and growth of North Fork wine development, and they wanted to be part of it.

A year later, after secured ground had been prepared by Steve Mudd, the pre-eminent vineyard developer and manager, he asked Tom and Cynthia what kind of wine they wanted to produce. They looked at each other with sparkles in their eyes. They both answered at the same time, “Champagne!” Steve replied that there was only one winemaker for this project, Gilles Martin, a talented and international winemaker, who had previously worked with a major French Champagne House.

  • Sparkling Pointe Blanc de Blancs

    100% Chardonnay

    Certified Sustainable

    Of a bright gold color, this sparkling wine presents floral aromas of tree blossoms with notes of green apple and melon. Flavors of lemon zest and doughy characters add to its crisp mineral edge. Aged for over 3 years on its fine yeast lees, its toasty flavors enhance its creaminess to the palate. Striking in acidity and dry in style, it finishes elegantly on a lemon rind and biscuit note. The toasty flavors and crisp citrus notes make this wine a great accompaniment to triple cream cheeses, sushi, and shellfish, smoked salmon, and eggs benedict. Garlic favors this wine so try with garlic stuffed mushrooms or Greek cuisine.
